Eric Golden grew up a lifelong fan of the Redskins football team in Washington, D.C. Imagine his surprise when, by chance, he spotted a newspaper help-wanted ad for the organization, which in turn led to a new job as the team’s general counsel. The 34-year-old Harvard Law School graduate arrived at the Redskins organization fresh from an in-house corporate counsel job at McAndrews & Forbes Holding Inc. But after only four months, Golden left football. McAndrews, it happens, is the principal owner of Panavision, a Woodland Hills, California-based manufacturer and supplier of movie cameras and equipment for the motion picture and television industries. And Panavision needed a new GC. The holding company, Golden says, lured him back with an offer “more in line with my long-term career perspective.” That career began right out of Harvard, with a clerkship to Judge John Walker, Jr., on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Golden then took an associateship at New York’s Stillman & Friedman before opting to go in-house. At Panavision, where he’s executive vice president and GC, Golden is tackling everything from litigation to commercial transactions. And as the only in-house attorney there, he’s relying on several high-profile outside firms. What does he have to say about his success at such a young age? “I consider myself very lucky for the opportunities that have come my way by chance.”
